Artist Line-Up

Erin Bower
Erin Bower has followed her passion for painting and become a muralist and portrait painter, currently working for Showgoat Mural Works, a mural painting company that paints signage and commercial images throughout Austin and its surrounding areas. 

Alexandra Torres
Psalm's Canvas came about after Alex's church retreat in September 2009 when she felt the calling upon her heart to use her poetry to inspire her paintings. 

Ernesto Hernandez
Ernesto Hernandez is a self-taught muralist who has exhibited and created public art for the last 19 years with over 45 large scale projects in Mexico and the United States. He has been a member of several muralist groups and trans-national artist collectives and has exhibited or created work for the Civil Rights Museum in Savannah, Senecu Gallery in El Paso, TX., Emma S Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center in Austin, as well as several galleries and Museums in Mexico.

Dondi J. Aguirre
Dondi has always had an interest in figurative drawing and painting. It is through making art that has been a creative outlet for an expressive release. An outlet that he hopes will connect to the viewer and that they may be emotionally moved, that they may relate to what they are seeing in some way or manner when they look at his artwork.
